Women Entrepreneurs Making Waves in Tennessee

As I gear up to welcome women entrepreneurs from all over the world, I’m reminded daily why I chose Nashville, TN for my 2018 conference location.   It turns out that the energy making this city hum goes way beyond the music that first put Nashville on the map.  In fact, three Tennessee cities (Memphis, Chattanooga and Nashville) are among the top five cities identified by WalletHub as the best cities for women business owners.   Women Entrepreneurs aren’t just making money in Tennessee, they’re changing lives, impacting industries and infusing their work with an unmistakably authentic spin.  Here are a few to take note of:

1. Lauren Zoeller

Lauren Zoeller is the first woman entrepreneur that reached out to me from Nashville.  A whole living life coach, yoga enthusiast, and work life balance coach, Zoeller combines yoga, life coaching, journaling, meditation and more to help people — especially performers, executives, entrepreneurs, and athletes — create  sustainable life balance.  Not one to follow the predictable path, she has continued to expand her learning and follow her own passions in an effort to better serve her growing list clients.    In the end, Zoeller has created a unique way to bring busy professionals what they want most:  less stress, more joy and better performance.

2. Paige Williams

You can find interior designers anywhere, but Paige Williams is a Nashville treasure.  With a love of color, Williams helps home owners confidently abandon their white (or gray) walls in favor of color and design schemes that not only reflect the homeowner’s personality but also create houses they are proud to call home.   Williams has become a proven resource in the Nashville real estate market and often partners with contractors on major remodels, helping home owners through the difficult choices associated with their new home.   She not only runs her own business, she is also the leader of FemCity Nashville, an organization that helps connect women entrepreneurs in local chapters.

3. Christie Berger

Williams isn’t the only female entrepreneur supporting other women.  Christie Berger is a Nashville Executive Coach who founded Fusion Leader Circuits (FLC). These forums were designed by Berger not only to broaden the network of executive women across Nashville, but meet their unique learning needs and desires.  Berger’s FLC — a unique concept that is laser-focused on serving  women leaders and the companies that employee them — is wrapping up its second year-long engagement providing group coaching, training and networking opportunities for its participants and is gearing up for an even more exciting 2019.

4. Dr. Libby Orsburn

Dr. Libby Orsburn is a medical doctor that provides acupuncture, botox, and functional medicine in Franklin, TN.  The services she offers range from the ancient to the modern, however,  her practice is reminiscent of how medicine used to be.  Many would argue it’s the way medicine should be.  Her patients call the office and talk directly to her.  When they have a question, they text the doctor… and get a response.  And when they show up for an appointment, patients enjoy 90 minutes with the physician.  With no rush and no red tape, Dr. Orsburn’s individualized approach  is leading the way in bringing physicians back to their patients.

These amazing and driven women entrepreneurs not only have unparalleled passion and expertise in their fields, they also have a true heart for the people they serve and the communities they love.   It’s this intersection of passion, expertise and heart — amidst the southern but modern vibe of the state — that is drawing increasing numbers of women entrepreneurs to the innovative entrepreneurial hub of Tennessee.
